Highly Detailed ArchiCAD Models and Their Benefits

Monday, February 16th, 2015

Discover the Benefits of a Complete and Detailed Model

GRAPHISOFT North America proudly announces a webinar scheduled for February 26, 2015 featuring work by Asheville, NC based Griffin Architects, PA. An ArchiCAD firm since 1998, Griffin Architects focuses on highly detailed high end custom residential and commercial projects, using ArchiCAD to model every aspect of the design process. From the beginning schematics of a project’s early phases to adding details as design ideas are finalized and creating construction documents, the firm relies on ArchiCAD to express their ideas, communicate with their clients through an efficient and productive workflow.ArchicAD

“We see ArchiCAD as the tool for expressing our ideas,” said Greg Lambert, Griffin Architect Project Manager. “Being able to model it, which is in essence virtually building it, you can accurately judge your idea and either put it into the finished design or come up with a new idea.”

The focus of this webinar will center on a project currently on the boards for the firm now, a 15,000 square foot home, new construction. During this webinar, attendees will learn how:

  • Fully modeling for client approval saved time
  • Visualizing and showing 3D enhanced communication of design intent
  • Creating a detailed model that becomes the plan
  • Producing interior elevations and detailed sections quickly and directly from the model
  • Reducing 2D work

Attendees will also hear from team members on the scalability of this process.

“Whether it is a small or large home or building, this process works on any scale. The time you spend modeling becomes the documents you need in the end, the model becomes the way in which you communicate with your client and the contractor, the model is the virtual building – ArchiCAD does it all,” Lambert added.ArchiCAD

Get the most out of your model, no matter the project size by signing up for this webinar. Scheduled for February 26th, 2015 from 2p-3p.

ArchiCAD 18 Webinar

ArchiCAD 18 streamlines the BIM workflow with built-in CineRender, a brand new render engine with high-end photorealistic rendering capabilities previously found only in the professional visualization application CINEMA 4D – now available right inside the BIM tool. The integration of CineRender, MAXON’s world-class CINEMA 4D rendering engine into ArchiCAD 18, brings this capability closer to a much wider range of users.

First They Switched, Then They Took Design Further

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

Austin, Texas based Dick Clark & Associates, switched to ArchiCAD from Vectorworks about two years ago. The architecture firm is an all-Mac shop which produces designs for custom residential projects as well as urban commercial and hospitality developments.

Now that the transition has been made and the architects on staff have become adept with ArchiCAD, the team has noticed the freedom they have to design instead of worrying about the back end of their drawings. They report being able to fully explore a variety of design options because ArchiCAD supports their creativity with solid architectural data and building information.

BIM Lives in the Details – Let’s Test That
